Even when exercising Dita makes sure she has makeup on. As she says in her book “a bad day always goes better with a bold lipstick. I find comfort in being glamorous.”
Now I am not short on makeup supplies so this one was not the hardest of the What Would Dita Do ideas! When you have to fill 3 makeup bags, 2 vanity cases and god knows how many lipsticks in the bottom of all your handbags you do not need to panic about not having enough to use!
As I get very little sleep I am an expert in covering up exhaustion. But most of the time I would normally just stick with trying not to look like a corpse with concealer, foundation, bronzer and blush. Since starting the WWDD I have been adding lipstick to my daily routine. My favourite colours are Besame “cherry red”, Mac “ruby woo”, Mac “impassioned” and Mac “morange”. All do give me a smile even on the worst days and it certainly perks up my complexion!
The Besame lipsticks are particularly good when it comes to staying power (I only need to reapply once in a day and it fades really evenly). The ways the bullet is shaped means that you can also use it as a liner (yay for a 2 in 1!). I also have Besame “red hot red” but I tend to use that more as an evening lipstick.
Mac “Ruby Woo” is the most recent addition to my stash. I know it’s meant to be THE retro red lipstick along with Russian Red but I have always gone for others over it. It is a bit drying but I always slick on some burts bees lip balm first and that keeps them nice and soft!
“Impassioned” is my favourite ever pink lipstick! It’s just so bright and happy! It seems to go with whatever hair colour I have, be it blue, pink, lilac or orange! This is also a matt colour but much creamier than the “Ruby Woo”.
When it is Summer, along with Impassioned, I love to wear “Morange”! I am on my 3rd tube of it (which is a very rare thing!). It also goes really well with autumnal looks and is a bit of a softer style than the other 3. However, if you want to you can lay it on thick and you will certainly get a really loud pop of colour!
Like Dita, I don’t wear makeup because I hate how I look, it just gives a bit of glamour on a dull day! That it hides my zombie look is an added bonus! And she is right that it only takes 30 seconds to apply which definitely seems worth it!
